|Non-Player Characters [NPCs]||(General)|
Non-Player Characters (NPCs) are all living beings in the game which are not controlled by players. A tribal merchant who wanders the streets of Allanak, a mantis raider in the desert sands, and an old grey kank are all examples of NPCs. Any NPC may at any time be inhabited by the spirit of an staff member (i.e., controlled by), and might then take on some special life. No warnings are necessary. In addition, NPCs can sometimes act in unexpectedly intelligent ways. Any complaints about NPC behaviour (such as "They can't do that!") will be pointedly ignored.
